  • Trivia: Use 5 whips, get 1 whips back

    Would net you between 20%-25% returns, depending on how many whips you have initially.

    Let a be the amount of whips you have initially.
    After 1 round of using up all your initial whips, the number of whips you have is 0.8a.
    After the 2nd round, the number of whips you have is (0.8^2)a.

    This follows a geometric progression with common ratio 0.8.
    The sum to infinity gives a/(1-r) = 1.25a.
    However, this is true only if a is a very large number to begin with.

    At worst, you get 20% back.
    At best, you get 25%.

    Pretty good deal if you ask me.

        Who cares about event tokens, when one category of players is excluded from participating in the events, it becomes a bad event especially if the excluded party is the one paying the bonuses of the publisher. Bad events will be corrected in the shortest possible time to ensure such important customers are not excluded from the events or if they must be excluded, it will not be at a loss to them. Bottomline, they will never care about what u care about. So at the end of the day, the moral of the story is that when you encounter such situation, either you quit the game or just suck thumb and continue with whatever is given to you without complaints.

            Not everyone has experienced that yet so they can't complain about it.

                  I just did calculations.. with my 2,500 whips, I'll be able to get an extra 500 whips, which in turn will give me 100 whips, which in turn will give me 20 whips, which will give me 4 whips, a total of 624 extra whips from this event...

                  624 is a pretty good deal anyways... I remembered the previous gem event, where the level 8 gem synthesis gives 500 (around like that) mount whips... It is like I just gemmed a level 8 gem..

                    624/2500 = 24.96%. Pretty close to optimum gain.

                            I'm starting with 5644 whips, with the bonus whips back I'll get an extra 1408 whips, just a smidge under 25% bonus. The bonus 1408 whips would cost me almost 28,000 balens if purchased at the sale price in shop, or almost $500 if I paid full price (which I'd never do). Not bad, don't care about mount anyway, already got it in one of my 40 boxes I bought.

                              a/(1-0.8) = 5a
